A DUBLIN man accused of violent drug debt extortion and dealing cannabis online through Instagram has been denied bail.
Gardai arrested Jordan Duff, 22, a father of one with an address at Cappagh Road, Finglas, as part of Operation Fógra.
It is an ongoing investigation into intimidation in north Dublin.
He appeared at Dublin District Court today charged with demanding money with menaces, assault causing harm, cannabis possession and supply, burglary and criminal damage.
Garda Alan Clarke told the court Mr Duff “made no reply to any of the charges”.
He objected to bail due to witness intimidation fears.
The officer alleged that the case stemmed from “attempts to recoup drug debts” from a man or people connected to him, including his partner’s 80-year-old father.
A contested bail hearing was told the accused went to the partner’s family home on December 4.
